Anti-Semitism: Greek town erases Star of David from Holocaust memorial

Kavala Jews Holocaust

 

Officials at the Greek port of Kavala were scheduled to unveil a memorial to Jewish victims of the Holocaust – 1,484 Jews in the city were murdered by the invading Germans and their Bulgarian allies.  

But the burgers won’t show the tribute to the dead because the monument features a Star of David. That same symbol appears on the flag of Israel, and because the local leaders don’t like that country the Jews must go without their ancient symbol or else find a new one, perhaps of a teddy bear, say, a broken plate or an unmarked pit?

It’s not anti-Semitism, of course. It’s just anti-Israel. And if Jews can bury their dead without any Star of David showing, the Greeks and all decent folk would be appreciative.
